Dear RightStuf!

I was checking out Rightstuff and found 2 versions of Banner of the Stars II DVD:

http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/iduaRBi3LwUCrSSfyx/browse/item/69448/4/0/0

(Banner of the Stars II DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) (Anime Legends))

http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/iduaRBi3LwUCrSSfyx/browse/item/63849/4/0/0

(Banner of the Stars II DVD Complete Collection (Hyb))


The first one is "Anime Legends" edition that has been released in 2006 and has running time of 275min, the second is the "normal" Complete Edition that has been released in 2004, however that one has 325min running time. They both are Banner of the Stars II, but the older has an extra 50 min according to rightstuf product page.

Could you please tell me what is the extra 50 min on the older (and a bit more expensive) version? Or is it just a typo? Or is the "Hiroyuki Morioka Interview" 50 min?

Thank you.


ps: I made this topic because others might be interested too.

Get this one !!!
http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/iduaRBi3LwUCrSSfyx/browse/item/69448/4/0/0
it includes the OVA episode "Passage of the Stars", about Lafiel's Parents.
( donít worry about what the time length says )

This is the Anime that got me into being an Anime Fan, it is one of my Top Three ALL-TIME Favorites.

The older one has the OVA too.

If the older one didnt have the ova, than the difference would be 75 min, not 50 smile

Banner of the Stars III is about ~54 min long, any chance that the 50 min could be that? Or is it just a typo or is it just 50 min of extra (like interview)?

ps: Thanks for the link, always nice to see that there are other Stars fans out there smile

Hi, Tind!

We checked into the details, and both Banner of the Stars II sets are actually 325 minutes.

Thanks for the heads up about the time difference! smile

Best,

Christy S.

Okay, the OVA Passage of the stars ( sometime referred to as Birth, I believe, but I could be wrong )
is only 25-ish minutes long. This is the length as a standard half hour episode.
Banner of the Stars II is only 10 episode long, add the OVA and call it 11 episodes.
Divide that by 275 minutes and you get eleven 25 minutes episodes.

This one is wrong ( as far as time length )

I still say get this one

Okay, but 10 regular Half hour ( 23-25 minutes long ) plus one OVA the same length
as a standard half hour episodes works out to be 275 minutes all day long
( at 25 minute per episode average )
As opposed to 325 minutes as you say.
(Even the other Sites say 275)


But in the end, all that is really neither here nor there.
Just get this one

Just for future reference, Bandai doesn't re-encode their discs like Funimation and Neo ADV (Sentai, ADV) do. They use the same discs across the board. In other words, the two versions have the same discs just different packaging and price.

Whell, I made the order for all 3 seasons. I asked for a "small" delay in shipping, hopefully all goes well with my first RighStuf order. smile

Thank you all for the help!
